Bronner Bros. Trade Show: History
Bronner Brothers began in 1947 when brothers Dr. Nathaniel H. Bronner and Arthur E. Bronner, Sr., along with their sister, Emma Bronner, began teaching area cosmetologists different techniques. With 300 people in attendance, the first Bronner Brothers Trade Show was held. Over the years, popularity grew and many celebrity speakers were invited to the show. Due to the growth of the event, the show was moved several times, first from the Butler Street YMCA, then to the Atlanta City Auditorium. In 1967 the show signed a 10-year contract with the Hyatt Regency, which would be home to the show for the next 20 years. Growth continued and the show moved several more times before landing at its present venue, the Georgia World Congress Center.

Interested in exhibiting instead? There are more than 30,000 professionals exhibiting at Bronner Bros. trade show each year. From a marketing standpoint, exhibiting at tradeshows can be a wonderful way to gain exposure and gain new leads. It is important to note, though, the amount of hair vendors that support Bronner Bros. Trade Show has climbed exponentially in recent years, requiring that they limit the number of hair vendors allowed to exhibit. There is a waitlist process and availability fills quickly.
